2008- Research Developments and Needs in Sustainable Packaging Metrics by Dr. Claire Sand

  1. 1. Research Developments and Needs in Sustainable Packaging Metrics Claire Koelsch Sand, Ph.D. MSU Adjunct/PTIS/Ameripak IFT Annual Meeting 2008
  2. 2. Agenda Current state of sustainable packaging metrics What is needed in sustainable packaging metrics Research in sustainable packaging metrics needed to meet these needs
  3. 3. Agenda Current state of sustainable packaging metrics What is needed in sustainable packaging metrics Research in sustainable packaging metrics needed to meet these needs
  4. 4. ent state of sustainable packaging metrics Retailers CPG specific Packaging suppliers Governments
  5. 5. Overall Metrics How and what are measured varies Recycled content Increased waste reduction Decreased energy use Carbon footprint Beverage and paper companies measure water
  6. 6. Retailer Metrics Wal-Mart Scorecard: GHG emissions, material value, product to packaging ratio, cube utilization, emissions during transport recycled content usage, amount of renewable energy used, recovery value of the raw materials, Focus is on cost reduction for Wal-Mart Final metric vs tool for improvement
  7. 7. Retailer Metrics continued Global retailers continued UK emmissions Sourcing Carbon footprint
  8. 8. “that we should all avoid the risk of the Wal-Mart Packaging Scorecard becoming a de facto industry standard. Not only could such an eventuality disrupt the market but even worse, it risks evolving in such a way as to become an inhibitor of innovation rather than a stimulator” EUROPEN
  9. 9. CPG Metrics-for consumers CPG metrics are translated into positive consumer language-something improved vs. use of resources Cars taken off road Number of trees planted Biodiversity Metrics used as a sales tool with increasingly low consumer confidence Consistency is lacking Facilities vary Energy used varies Material sources varies
  10. 10. CPG Metrics internal use Primarily design guides SCJ Greenlist – Well respected 8 performance parameters Continuous improvement Amount of packaging materials (weight or volume) Product/package ratio Percent of suppliers that are sustainable Reduction of emission, energy, water... Carbon footprint
  11. 11. CPG Metrics in wide use PIQET- Packaging Impact Quick Evaluation Tool SPA driven, LCA based From Australia & well respected worldwide Nestle is most common user
  12. 12. CPG Metrics in wide use continued Rapid Assessment Tool (RAT) MERGE – Managing Environ, Resources Guidance and Evaluation COMPASS-Comparative Packaging Assessment for SPC members Fall 2008
  13. 13. Packaging Supplier Metrics Metrics used as sales tools to CPGs Much confusion BASF eco-efficiency tool Basis in economy, environment, society Excellent comparative assessment Metrics used as part of CRS
  14. 14. BASF Eco-Efficiency tool is user friendly 1000 L water at a distance of 300 km from the bottling plant.
  15. 15. Packaging Design Guidelines INCPEN Responsible Packaging Code of Practice 85% of UK industry represented SPC Design Guidelines WRAP (Waste and Resources Action program - UK) Johnson and Johnson DfE Tool
  16. 16. Sustainability Indices Dow Jones Sustainability Index FTSE4Good Working on sustainability Supply chain integrity LOHAS Index (NMI) Global Reporting Initiative (“GRI”) Anticipated collaborative alignment of: FASB (Financial Accounting Standards Board) SEC EPA ESI (Environmental Sustainability Index)
  17. 17. Governmental Global Reporting Initiative (“GRI”) EPM (Environmental Performance Measurement)
  18. 18. Summary of packaging metrics PIQET Wal-Mart Scorecard MERGE COMPASS • Eco-efficiency (BASF)
  19. 19. Agenda Current state of sustainable packaging metrics What is needed in sustainable packaging metrics Research in sustainable packaging metrics needed to meet these needs
  20. 20. What is needed in sustainable packaging metrics Guide making the right decisions
  21. 21. Requirements of Metrics whole value chain applicable accurate & detailed transparent quick foster communication
  22. 22. Agenda Current state of sustainable packaging metrics What is needed in sustainable packaging metrics Research in sustainable packaging metrics needed to meet these needs
  23. 23. Research required to be applicable to the whole value chain 1) Research on translations needed at various stages of converting 2) Research on how to facilitate information transfer 3) Research on how packaging metrics can open up communication between suppliers
  24. 24. Research required to meet accuracy and detailed needs Research on how to attain most accurate data Material specific Facility specific Source specific Season specific Technology specific • Research to enable automatic updating of information • Research to explore the applicability of SPC Indicators and Metrics Project • Research on how to establish a verification process that the correct information is used
  25. 25. Research required to meet transparency needs • Research to assess what is needed for data must be believable by entire value chain and stakeholders • Consumers • CPGs • Retailers Research to establish verification that the correct data is always used Research to enable confident data collection beyond MENA, BRIC, USA, EU, North America
  26. 26. Research required to meet quick needs Research that enables rapid assessment of area of most impact Research to determine baseline LCA data Research to enable rapid LCA data adjustment based on: high impact production sourcing distribution changes etc. • Research on what is needed to motivate Supplier consortium to facilitating sharing of metrics
  27. 27. Research required to foster communication needs Develop process for communicating with users within value chain SFC designation Harmonization of metrics Research to assess an optimal means of communicating with consumers Critique current communication methods Develop protocol for communicating metrics with Consumers • Harmonize consumer communication metric and methods
  28. 28. Thank you & Questions Current state of sustainable packaging metrics What is needed in sustainable packaging metrics Research in sustainable packaging metrics needed to meet these needs
